WHAT TO EXPECT FROM EMERGENCY CARE AT MOVEH
Upon arrival all animals are triaged. A staff member will take your pet’s vitals signs (temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure) and have a doctor perform a brief assessment. Pets with more life-threatening conditions will be seen before pets with less threatening conditions. When it is your pet’s turn to be seen by the emergency doctor they will take a history, perform a complete physical examination, make recommendations and provide an estimate for those services. All routine diagnostics can be performed on site including blood work, urinalysis and x-rays. Our emergency doctors are available to perform surgery should your pet require immediate surgical intervention.
